The F-16 and F-15 are definitely benefiting from my recent back injury. After sitting in my lazy boy for the better part of the day, I just need to stand and that is the perfect time to get some progress accomplished. The A-10 is lagging with the rest of the masking to be addressed. I don’t think I can comfortably get that finished in a half sit, half lying down position. My back is feeling better every day so I’m looking at a weekend project on the A-10.
Both the F-16 and F-15 hit my goals for the day. The F-16’s wing roots were decent with just a little more sanding and filling. I was confident enough to move forward and attach the conformal fuel tanks. Those also look pretty decent. I do see a few areas that will need some gaps filled but nothing serious.
The F-15 was another happy success today. The CFT’s were passable with just a couple areas to touch up. They weren’t in the way of the wing installation so I proceeded with that project. One side was pretty good and the other looked pretty rough. I let the glue cure and filled the wing roots. There will be a good chunk of sanding to take care of tomorrow before I can check my work with some primer. I’m feeling great about the F-15 & F-16. They’re starting to develop a healthy groove.
